Seeking career advice!

Hi all,

I'm a consultant working in the development sector looking for a career switch.

I've done my PG in Entrepreneurship from TISS, Mumbai. I have 3 yrs of exp in fin modeling, business modeling, micro-enterprise development, pitch/project design etc.

Despite some major achievements & contributions growth is almost non-existent & frustrating.

Any guidance or referrals to get into strategy/management consulting/govt advisory roles in big 4 etc will of great help!
